Here are a few guidelines on how to avoid doing so.
• Use the correct amount of weight to aid in your buoyancy.

• Do not pick up organic objects (dead or alive) from the sea. Likewise, please do not buy shells or other decorative products made from sea animals.
• Do not stand or rest on the stone-like corals. After all, they are living animals.
